Wouldn't the good guys be pretty boring without any bad guys to defeat? Aren't we understood by whom are enemies are? Thanks to The Eagle for hosting The Evil Genius Blogfest.
This is so easy. My current favorite evil genius is blue and very cute. Megamind is everything an evil genius should be. He has witting dialogue, an oddball and loyal sidekick, and a perfect hero to fight. He lives to destroy Metro City. He has an endearing habit of mispronouncing words, a habit that will cause him lots of trouble.
Megamind comes from a troubled background. He was exposed to a rough, morally-challenged crowd in his young life. His role models directly influenced his decision to move to the dark side. Rejected by his peers at every turn, is it any wonder Megamind grew up to take vengeance on those who had mistreated him and judged him.
But the best thing about Megamind is his journey, from society's reject to the saviour of his tormentors. Only a true intellectual superior could devise a way to save Metro City from an evil even greater than our intrepid bad guy.
